Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Floreen has earned a spot on the November ballot in her independent bid for county executive. In order to qualify as a candidate, Floreen had to collect at least 7,243 valid signatures from Montgomery County voters (1% of registered voters) supportive of her effort to challenge Democratic nominee Marc Elrich and Republican candidate Robin Ficker.

According to The Washington Post:

Floreen, who announced her bid for the seat last month, submitted 20,360 petition signatures, of which 13,356 were determined valid, Election Director Margaret Jurgensen wrote Wednesday in a letter to Floreen.

Floreen, a 16-year at-large council member and former mayor of Garrett Park, is challenging Democrat Marc Elrich, a 12-year County Council member, and Republican Robin Ficker, an attorney and former state delegate, for the liberal county’s top elected position.
